Dawson County resident Amanda Yenerall was sworn in as the county’s newest part-time magistrate judge on Feb. 11, vowing to uphold the principles of justice and fairness in the law. She was sworn in by Judge Jennifer Burt and appointed by Chief Magistrate Lisa Thurmond. The new part-time judge position was approved last year by the Dawson County Board of Commissioners. Yenerall, a partner with Gainesville law firm Stewart Melvin & Frost since 2013, received her law degree in 2007 from John Marshall Law School, the same year she was admitted to the Georgia Bar and began working at the firm as an associate attorney.
